Late last night we brought you word that the Kansas City Chiefs had made initial contact with Miami Dolphins CB Sean Smith, despite signing Falcons CB Dunta Robinson earlier in the evening.
Now, a report from Pro Football Talk claims the Chiefs are no longer interested in Smith.
The Chiefs, after signing cornerback Dunta Robinson, no longer have interest in Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith, per a league source.
Robinson is believed to be getting starter money from the Chiefs. With Brandon Flower doing the same, paying Smith top-of-market money no longer makes sense.
Kansas City’s interest in Smith was one of the few nuggets of information that emerged after the legal non-tampering tampering period opened at midnight.
This makes sense. The Chiefs may have called up Smith’s agent to see what the CB was looking for out of a contract. My guess is that the dollar figure was a little to rich for John Dorsey.
The Chiefs are doing such a good job locking up players that they will soon have to begin paying close attention to the salary cap. We aren’t sure what KC’s cap number is just yet but the re-signing of Dwayne Bowe and Dustin Colquitt, along with the franchising of Braden Albert, has to be pushing KC closer to the limit.
